may’s favorite three

It’s time again for this month’s favorite three!

First up is The Post Family, a design collaborative and blog that Margot Harrington introduced me to a while back. (And they are featured in the latest issue of HOW!). The Post Family began in 2007 in Chicago with seven guys who shared a love for art and design, and wanted a studio where they could collaborate and get inspired outside of their 9-5 jobs. Today, a few of them are self-employed and work in the studio full time, and they host monthly gallery shows which are usually accompanied by live music. Their design blog is a reflection of their great taste and creativity.

I just found Forever is Today via See Saw (another big favorite!), and it took me all of 5 seconds to decide that it was a blog I want to follow. Editor Hilda Grahnat, 23, is studying graphic design in Sweden, and her blog is full of beautiful photos she’s taken of thrift store finds, everyday life, and her beautiful apartment. It’s one of those blogs that you want to spend all day sorting through, back to her very first post in fall 2008. Hilda just opened the Forever is Today shop, so be sure to check it out.

When I first discovered the world of blogs, Creative Comforts was one of the first ones I started reading on a regular basis. I’m sure you’re a fan, too—Ez’s talent for finding beautiful objects, grouping her finds, and placing them in well-designed layouts has brought her a large, dedicated following. I appreciate all the extra effort Ez takes in making each post something special!

Don’t forget to check out past blog favorites in the archives. Blogs chosen as “this month’s favorite three” usually get a banner in the favorite three sidebar section, but this month I thought I’d try something new… blogs chosen for This Month’s Favorite Three will have a free one month ad in the sponsor section.
